I've yet to get a moment to catch my breath, sit down, kick back, catch up on everyone's blogs, but I just found out that today I get to tag along on a trip to San Francisco with the Cap'n. I've only ever been to CA once (San Diego) so I'm beyond excited!
During our short stint home, I've been enjoying the bounty of spring with a few early mangoes
VWaV's Curried Mango Tempeh Salad is so very scrumptious, the minute they are in season near you (i always jump the gun a bit and start picking the ripe ones up immediately every May) I highly recommend you whip this up and let it sit in the fridge overnight, give the flavors a chance to meld and devour it the next day.
I also was so excited to see tomatillos again in the grocery store. You know what this means.....a TON of salsa. yay!
we used it with some fake chik'n strips some canned vegan refried beans, guac, shredded greanleaf lettuce and organic corn tortilla shells for some killer quick tacos.
i've said it before and I'll say it again, salsa is my most favorite condiment. I love to enjoy it on a baked potato with some steamed broccoli.....come to think of it, if i can get my butt in gear and packed this morning....that's totally what i'm having for lunch!
So, I'm excited about the driving we're planning in wine country but more than a little put off by the lack of vegan wineries along the way. At least the scenery will be nice? Then I'm overwhelmed by the possibilities that lie ahead for vegan fare in San Fran, and thanks to the suggestions of the beautiful and amazing goddess Madness, we already have reservations for Millennium Sat and plans to visit some other great vegan stops along the way.
Can't wait to share! Have a wonderful weekend!
